Let It Sparkle

Hi there!!  Welcome back to another theme reveal for the Always Fun Challenges blog.  The theme this week is called “Let It Sparkle”.  I chose to do a shaker card which has lots of yummy sparkles.  This was my first time using the Secret Garden set by Simon Says Stamp and I am loving it!  It’s just such an adorable set.  I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with the background though so I made it up as I went.


I started by coloring the fairy first.  I’m very pleased with how she turned out.  Once I had the fairy colored, I moved on to the house.  I chose to match the house to the fairy.  Isn’t she just the cutest??

While I was coloring the fairy, I started flipping through all of my past cards to find a skin tone and hair color that I liked and it doing so, I ran across a beautiful distressed background that I did awhile back for a mermaid card that I had created.  This is the card that inspired the background for my fairy card.  I absolutely LOVE these two colors together.


I used Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron to make this gorgeous background.  It works great for a mermaid card AND a fairy one!


If you’d like to see how I made this card, please click on the video below.  Below that is a list of all the products I used.  Please head over to the Always Fun Challenges blog and join us this week for the “Let It Sparkle” theme!!  It’s always open to everyone who’d like to participate.

Thanks for stopping by!!
